I would look into whether your WC insurance will cover ESWT. This is a very effective alternative to foot surgery. Read the section on ESWT .
If you want an informational packet with video ( also can be seen on this site) just let DR. Z know . I believe that in some states ESWT may be covered by WC insurance. Need to call them and ask.

Hi Taylor,
I have not had surgery just yet. I am waiting for WC to approve the pre-op. What happened to my case is ,my WC insurance company has filed bankruptcy ,so my claim is with a new company that is taking over for them for now. I have been waiting for 6 weeks so far. Now my attorney is going to put my case in front of a judge to approve it. It has been real crazy . My attorney also said that it is the norm for insurance companies to go bankrupt ,she has 5 right now that are going through bankruptcy. If I was you I would get an attorney ASAP.

Also that is very good advise Dr. Z gave you ......
